Sustainable travel

Journey Latin America and sustainable travel.


Sustainable travel

Since Journey Latin America was established over 35 years ago we have striven to operate responsibly and promote sustainable tourism. Our aim is to provide authentic experiences which are sensitive to the environments and communities you visit. We endeavour to be sensitive to local laws and customs and minimise any negative impact of long-haul travel.

The local suppliers of our services agree to:

  • Maintain the sustainable services they provide. This includes employment policies,  energy supplies and upholding a commitment to the local communities and their development.
  • Inform us of any services which can be recognised for outstanding commitment to sustainability.
  • Ensure that benefits from tourism filter down to the local communities wherever possible.

AITO was the first travel industry association to incorporate a commitment to Sustainable Travel and green tourism into its business charter, and we were delighted to be one of the first operators credited with the maximum Sustainable Travel Award by AITO.
